O come all ye faithful joyful and triumphant
Oh come ye O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him born the King of angels;
O come let us adore him Christ the Lord.

God of God light of light
Lo he abhors not the virgin's womb;
Very God begotten not created:
O come let us adore him Christ the Lord.

Sing choirs of angels sing in exultation
Sing all ye citizens of heaven above;
Glory to God in the highest:
O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.

See how the shepards summoned to his cradel,
Leaving their flocks, draw nigh with lowly fear;
We too will thither hend our joyful footsteps;
O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.

Yea, Lord, we greet thee, born this happy morning;
Jesus, to thee be glory given;
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing:
O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.

    I think it is important to let all people know that God is good no matter what. So, why not proclaim this fact to the world by preaching, praying and even singing some of the oldest hymns (like this one and many others) that still, evidently, send great praises to God. God is good. There is no doubting that fact. But if only people would open their eyes to see this. The world would be completely different if everybody acknowledged that God is truly brilliant and miracle working. There would be no war, crime and sin, only God's amazing love and peace. People have used the 'free-will' God has given us wrongly, and have used it to harm others and make people suffer.

    But God has much forgiveness and His love stretches beyond the Universe. That is why he sent His only son, Jesus, to die a horrifying death on a cross. So that Jesus can take all of the sin we have done and get rid of it, so that we can choose to have a religious relationship with the awesome and perfect God.
    Finally, I would say that the meanings of this song are that you should drop all of your worries, become faithful in Jesus and simply praise and adore Him.

    I remember when I as younger, our school teacher made up a song called Sing Out Loud, at the end we'd have one bit singing the chorus whilst the other does 'O come all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant' those were the good times I say. But either way this song I believe is to originate from Holy saints and bishops
